Vail and Beaver Creek have been receiving tons of snow and in some areas of the mountain, it's just sitting there not getting skied.
Vail is now up to more than 2,600 skiable acres, which is the most open terrain in Colorado by far. Vail received 2 feet of new snow this week and Orient Express (#21) and Teacup Express (#36). The resort also opened Riva Bahn Express (#6) and Highline Express (#10), and the famous Two Elk restaurant is also open now providing additional dining options for guests.
The 11 ¼ mile network of multi-use trails known as the West Avon Preserve is now open just west of Vail. Twisting through the parcel between the Singletree and Wildridge neighborhoods, the trails range in degrees of difficulty from easy to strenuous. Residents and visitors can enjoy peaceful hikes and exhilarating mountain bike rides; horseback riding is also allowed on this large, mid-valley hillside property that borders National Forest land.
Oh the thrill of a snow day! It’s the perfect excuse to take some time off for a picture perfect day with Colorado blue skies and fresh deep powder. Gather your family and take some time to get out and enjoy a snow day in Vail.
